My Top 10 Favorite Recipes

As prepared by S Caron,

Playing Favorites

Everyone has their favorites. Food. Wine. Whatever. But when it comes to your own recipes, it’s personal. They are like babies – ones that you’ve nurtured and coaxed into something crave-worthy. So, when I was asked to write about my 10 favorite recipes, it was a tough assignment.

Besides the fact that it made me totally hungry, going through my recipes was a great trip down memory lane. As you can imagine, the hardest part about writing this post was narrowing it down to just 10. Here they are in no particular order:

1.  10-Minute Salsa Chicken

This simple, fast and easy recipe is high on flavor and low on stress. You simply pan fry the chicken, slather it with salsa and cheese and let it melt fast. It’s perfect for a quick dinner anytime.

2.  Butternut Squash Soup

It only takes about 10 minutes to prep this soup, which is savory with notes of pumpkin pie and really good roasted squash.

3. Parmesan Rosemary Sweet Potato Fries

My family eats a ton of sweet potato fries (actually, they are baked, but who’s counting?). This is our favorite flavor combo.

4. Black Bean, Avocado and Red Pepper Quesadilla

This stuffed quesadilla takes only 15 minutes to make. And the flavor? Incredible. It’s the perfect fast bite.

5. Greek Chicken Salad Sandwiches

I love a good chicken salad with vinaigrette, and this version – which is stuffed with chopped kalamata olives, cucumbers, feta and more – is fantastic. Everyone loves it.

6. Creamy Gorgonzola and Shrimp Pasta

This is, bar none, my favorite pasta from last summer. And my family loved it so much that they ate it often (including at lunch on the first day of school). It has so much flavor.

7. Basil White Bean Dip

Basil is, without a doubt, my favorite herb. And this fabulous dip is hearty and flavorful … serve it with your favorite chopped veggies.

8. Balsamic Tomato, Corn and Cucumber Panzanella

Crunchy, sweet, tangy … this salad has it all. And, although I haven’t had it since summertime, I can taste it when I think about it – a sign of a truly delicious dish.

9. Chicken, Cranberry and Goat Cheese Salad

Another well-balanced salad, this has elements of sweetness, creaminess and crunchiness. Every bite is fantastic.

There are dozens and dozens of great recipes for banana bread, but this one stands out. It’s dotted with sweet berries and topped with a buttery, crunchy topping. Delish!
